Think its the same as the Trophy - in which case there are two inlet pipes located at the front and back of the airbox. The front pipe does a 180 bend going under the box to point rearward and draws air somewhere below the ECU near the rear boot bulkhead. The rear one has a 90 bend dropping slightly and and draws air from the centre rear of the engine bay.

Nope.

This has been discussed a lot and I hope to knock up some vent scoops and connect the air box to the nearside vent. The vents are just there for air flow in the engine bay. The offside has a fan fitted to help with this.

No, the're for engine bay cooling. Many have rerouted the inlet pipes to the N/S vent to get cooler air though ;)

Just found a photo of the standard TF/Trophy airbox - taken from the front of the car (as it were) You can sort of work out where thepipes would go.



The front one (front in the photo) can be tucked into the side grill directly but the rear one needs extending to do this.

EDIT

You're too fast for me CJ :D
